QUENTIN HARRIS

Quentin Harris is one of the leaders of the modern-day Soulful/Deep House music scene and has been credited with helping revitalize the genre. He's one of the hottest DJ/producers in the music industry and has provided many chart-topping remixes for an eclectic array of artists such as Mariah Carey, Justin Timberlake, Femi Kuti, Jennifer Hudson, Patti Labelle, Chaka Khan, Etta James, Billy Porter, Ultra Naté, David Morales, and Frankie Knuckles, just to name a few. Born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, music was always a big part of his life, surrounded by a family of musicians. A multi-instrumentalist, by 13 he begin performing live with his aunt’s Blues band, The Delta Children. He became inspired by many of the Motown legends as well as by Prince, George Clinton and Clinton’s Parliament-Funkadelic sound. Being from Detroit, he was also influenced by the early Detroit Techno & House sound. A modern-day urban artist, Harris was deeply immersed in the Detroit Hip Hop scene that produced the likes of Eminem and J-Dilla. It was here where Harris really begin to become a serious producer. By age 20 he was playing in-studio recording sessions with Aretha Franklin. During the mid to late 1990s, Harris’ house music sensibilities were shaped by his frequent trips to NYC and hanging out at legendary clubs such as Sound Factory, Sound Factory Bar, Be Yourself, Body & Soul, and the original Shelter. House music at this point, according to Harris was much less niche-oriented with tracks crossing over from scene to scene. After permanently relocating to NYC by the start of the new millennium, Harris settled in at Satellite Records, the largest record store in the city and one of the most influential in the world of dance music. Thereafter he began getting more involved in remixing and production work, building a stellar reputation for his soulful and complex Deep House efforts that have proven popular on a wide variety of dance floors the world over. His tracks get consistent and enthusiastic support from DJs as musically diverse as Danny Tenaglia, David Morales, Hex Hector, Frankie Knuckles, Pete Tong, Roger Sanchez, Deep Dish, Derrick Carter, Francois K, and Danny Krivit. As a DJ, Harris has been inspired over the years by Detroit’s Ken Collier of Heaven Nightclub and Timmy Regisford of Club Shelter, where Quentin burst onto the House scene in New York. His remixes and original works became the sound of Shelter from 2000 to 2010. During that time Quentin’s sound became infectious globally which has gained him a following that is as unusually diverse as his music. He released two solo albums, “No Politics”(2006) and “Sacrifice” (2009). After releasing the Sacrifice album Quentin joined Def Mix, the legendary house of David Morales, Frankie Knuckles, Hector Romero, and Judy Weinstein. He released his third album as Black Stereo Faith, his collaborative album with Ultra Naté in 2017 which debuted in the top ten Dance albums on iTunes, and the single “I’m Too Sexy”, reached the top ten on the Billboard Dance Club Play Chart. Harris’ global appeal has grown exponentially with numerous production and remixing credits and DJing gigs throughout Europe, North America, Africa, Asia, and Australia.
